“Disappointed but immediate no hassles full refund provided”

Written on: 13/05/2013

I had taken a leap of faith and ordered a new Toyota Verso through them, saving £3k off the list price. Two weeks after signing up and paying my deposit, they contacted me to say the manufacturer had provided them with the wrong price plan and they had to add £1k to my order price. Alternatively they offered me a full refund. The revised price was the same as that quoted by my local dealership so I decided to go with them instead, as I thought they might be more reliable. The deposit was… Read Full Review

“Straightforward purchase”

Written on: 01/04/2013

I ordered my car early January, delivery took place mid-March. I was informed about the arrival of the car at the dealership and was able to access the vehicle registration details/chassis number after logging into my Buyacar online account. I opted for the collection from Buyacar office in London since I wanted to pay on collection and everything went smoothly. The registration certificate (V5C) was delivered by post on the day of the collection. Buyacar’s response to my emails/messages were… Read Full Review

“The best yet! excellent deal overall. ”

Written on: 26/03/2013

I've just taken delivery of my Wife's new Corsa and I very pleased indeed. Like a lot of reviews,you have to take a leap of faith in paying the deposit and the balance before ever seeing the car. However there were no scams in any search engine checks and all reviews were positive except some complaining of lateness of delivery, So I felt confident that everything was legit and went ahead. So 3 months later, My wife is delighted with her new car and I am equally pleased with the deal. My only… Read Full Review

“ Buyacar.co.uk. Honest and helpful and good comms.”

Written on: 21/03/2013 by Tctwice (1 review written)

I was concerned as you have to pay in full before you see the vehicle, after paying an initial deposit when ordering. I have used Drive the deal successfully before but their price was more everytime I checked so as most of the reviews were good I bit the bullet. Got a delivery date and I was slow paying in full as I tried to do it from abroad and had to wait until I got home putting us back a week. That was the hiccup. Cars the same as mine were delivered as planned in that week but by the… Read Full Review

“Purchase of my new Ciroen Picasso C4”

Written on: 11/03/2013

I was told about Buy a Car by a friend. This is my wifes third Citroen Picasso so I knew the car would be good. I had sold her previous car to another friend so was looking for a really good price for the purchase. Buy a car saved us money, delivered on time and were most helpful from the time I ordered the car which took 3 months as quoted to arrive. I will certainly use them again. … Read Full Review

“Great car buying experience”

Written on: 08/03/2013 by StuDavo (1 review written)

I, like many, was a little sceptical about buying a car over the internet. I purchase many things over the web but nothing that remotely gets close to the amount of money a new car involves. After the value of the savings Buyacar were quoting, the value of a new car from them was actually lower than what the local dealerships were quoting for an older model with 30,000 miles on the clock! It was this level of savings and the fact that the firm has been around a while that made me take the… Read Full Review

“A very positive experience in car buying”

Written on: 07/03/2013 by chesterzoo (1 review written)

I was a little sceptical when I first explored the possibility of buying a car online. Having looked through a number of websites I was drawn to Buyacar due to the reviews which I read with such positive feedback. I was not disappointed from the start of the process. I was quoted a price that I couldn't match at a discount price within £2000. I kept reminding myself of the old adage "If it looks too good, it probably is" In other words, don't touch it. I need not have concerned myself. I… Read Full Review

“Brand new Qashquai with terrific cash saving. ”

Written on: 07/03/2013 by MikeEshelby (1 review written)

I took the plunge of buying a new car and trading in my old one from the net, and am delighted I opted for BuyaCar.I was of course nervous about transferring money from my bank before delivery of the new car but any misgivings were completely unfounded. Not only did I make a huge saving, the Qashquai was delivered as promised,and even better was delivered by way of low loader with only 5 miles on the clock.My old car was collected on the same day without any problems, and so I was never left in… Read Full Review

“A very satisfied Qashqai +2 owner”

Written on: 06/03/2013

Like many people I was slightly anxious about buying a car unseen from the internet. However, my car arrived at the time promised (I could have had it 3 weekes earlier but they agreed to hold onto it until early March to let me have a 13 plate which I was pleased about). The price was excellent and the service first class. I was kept informed throughout the process and it arrived with delivery mileage in perfect condition. I would definitely recommend buyacar and Owen was very helpful. Thanks!… Read Full Review

“This is the way to go.”

Written on: 16/02/2013 by FarehamMan (1 review written)

I found this company and staff very helpful, the WEB site is easy to use with a wide choice of vehicles and prices. I selected a Nissan NOTE, n-tec+. Paid my deposit. Paid balance buy bank transfer. Nice and easy way to do business. I had no trade-in as sold my old car privately. Car delivered on my driveway, via low-loader 4 miles on the clock. Perfect, you can't get better than that. You HAVE to be flexible on delivery time as it can take a month or two before your vehicle surface's from the… Read Full Review

Hi no, i took a chance on that, I did not have a trade in, so unless the delivery people had two forms of transport I guessed it would be delivered by low loader.

I don't have a trade in either. I just ordered a Qashqai. I live in the middle of nowhere too so maybe it will be on a low loader too. Thanks for your reply.

Oh well done, I was after a Qashqai, but I had to be practical as I am nearing retirement, and there is just the two of us at home now so I went for the NOTE, and I am very happy with it. Just need some decent weather to enjoy it more, getting out and about.

One bit of advice then, if you are far from a fuel garage. Your new car when delivered to you will have NO fuel in it, so advise you have a can of fuel at home, unless you have a fuel garage very very near by.

Hi FarehamMan

I'm looking at buying a nissan. Can you advise if you are the first registered keeper and you received your V5 quickly?

Many thanks.

I have had the car now since 15th Jan, but I have not received the V5 yet. I did phone up Bayacar to inquire of the V5, I was advised that DVLA take up to 6 weeks to issue. According to the Bayacar blurb, I should be listed as the first reg keeper. Until the V5 turns up, I can not confirm.

“Purchase of my car”

Oliver and the team provided a good service from the onset of the selling process. I needed to sell my car reasonably quickly due to working overseas. Couldnt face the usual tyre kickers calling to the house, so rang buyacar and described the car in detail and received a reasonable but lowish price. They arranged collection fr5om my home and received payment by instant transfer without any hitches. Philip… Read Full Review

“Cannot sing praises more highly”

Written on: 01/02/2013 by foz4hel (1 review written)

Just received my Citroen C4 GP (25th Jan 2013). Obviously, slightly nervous buying such a large value item on-line through Buy A Car, who I have never meet. However, no such fears and wish to recommend these guys to everyone. Kay, Oliver and Owen were always attentive and helpful on the phone giving great customer service. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Great value cars with great, taxed with AA roadside assistance and excellent customer service. I will definitely use these guys… Read Full Review

“Qashqai+2”

Written on: 29/01/2013

I had been looking at another site for a similar car. They boasted they were the cheapest on the net and gave me a very low part exchange figure for my to cars I wanted to trade in.AND then I came across this website which was even cheaper than the 1st site PLUS the trade in part exchange was better. Being somewhat nervous of buying a car on the internet I looked up some reviews on this company and was worried by what it said. I emailed Buy a Car Ltd and I was contacted by phone and my fears… Read Full Review

“Evasive, suspicious explanation, failed.”

Written on: 28/01/2013

Deposit paid to Buyacar on Ford Galaxy in mid-September 2012, the delivery estimate was verbally as up to 8 weeks, subsequently changed to "mid-December". Delay followed delay until by early January I was ringing up daily with no explanation for the delays. I started questioning Buyacar whether the car actually existed. Suddenly on 10th Jan, 16 weeks in, we received an email at close of play in the evening from Buyacar telling us that "we have been having difficulty in ascertaining when… Read Full Review

We at buyacar.co.uk are very sorry that you have had a disappointing experience using our service. We do our best to keep all of our customers informed at all times of progress with their orders. We received the very unfortunate news of the damage to the car on 10th January, which of course compounded the frustration caused by the lead time for the vehicle. Immediately upon hearing this news, we offered the option of a new order or a full deposit refund. We apologise again for the inconvenience and disappointment - incidents of this nature are extremely rare. Owen from buyacar.co.uk

If you have any doubts about going through this route when buying a car, Buyacar should put your mind at rest. The website and ordering process keeps you fully informed and there aren't any nasty surprises or hidden costs! If you have any further questions they are more than happy to answer them. I rang Kay at Buyacar and he answered my questions courteously and patiently: no hard sell, just the info needed to help me make the right decision for me. Unlike some of their competitors I would… Read Full Review

“New Qashqai purchase.”

Written on: 13/11/2012 by Maddis (1 review written)

This company were recommended to me by my boss! And having never purchased a car off the internet I was slightly apprehensive. I even got one of my commercial colleagues to check the company out to see if they were legitimate! With the checks carried out I ordered and paid the deposit for the car and requested a delivery date, two weeks prior to the delivery I paid the balance. The car was delivered on the correct date and I was a happy man! I would strongly recommend Buyacar and I still can't… Read Full Review
